Hard to Scratch...Hard to Photograph... Hard to Find...

Post by Darksider » February 13th 2020, 10:07am

For 20+ years I have had this RADO DiaMaster Diver. It has proven to be a pretty good companion in a few areas...

First of all, the Tungsten Carbide Bezel and Bracelet have gone all this distance without a scratch! The material is really incredible.

The one time I thought I did scratch it, I was in error. It ended up taking a layer of aluminum off the small boat I was in and having it stick to the edge of the bracelet. I got home and worked on it with my fingernail for a while and it all came off without a trace. WOW! I only wish my RO could repel scratches like this one.

Next, while I am no real fan of Quartz movements, the ETA in this one goes for well over 7 years between battery changes.

And lastly, this thing shines like the mirror ball in a disco. If you want to attract attention at a distance, this one does it.

One big downside is the weight. Hard Metal weighs a lot. While Ceramics are lighter, I have not seen them provide a chrome-like finish the way T-C can.

In all, I have 3 RADO's and they are great daily-wearer / tool watches
